New Hampshire man faces drug charges following marijuana bust

New Hampshire readers may be aware that our state legalized medical marijuana this past July. However, recreational use of marijuana is still illegal, and possessing or selling it can lead to drug charges. A 24-year-old Pelham man was recently arrested for drug dealing after allegedly selling medical-grade marijuana to an undercover officer for recreational use. Police believe he is part of a drug ring and expect to make more arrests.

According to investigators, the accused sold them a hybrid form of marijuana known as "Blue Dream," which came from a medical marijuana dispensary in another state. The drug trafficking ring has allegedly been transporting significant quantities of this drug. New Hampshire State Police have been conducting their investigation into this drug ring for the past six months. Officers have reportedly purchased $4,000 worth of medical marijuana and prescription drugs from various individuals believed to be associated with the group.

Police arrested the accused because they believed that he would attempt to leave the state. He is currently in custody with bail set at $2,500. He may face additional criminal charges, though reports do not indicate what those charges might be.

As with any criminal case in our state, the accused has a right to due process and a fair trial. In addition, he is considered innocent under law unless or until a jury determines that he is guilty of these drug charges. He may benefit from a criminal defense team that will carefully examine the details of the investigation and the case against him in order to determine the strategy that will obtain the best results.
